Comic Halloween

Out of all the Halloween looks I've seen doing around at the moment, the most impressive ones I've seen have to be the 'comic' looks. They all looked so bold and fun to create. Once I knew who I wanted to try and look like I was so excited! Shame I had to improvise for the 'crown' but hey ho!

I based this look off the comic book Wonder Woman, with the dark arches brows and the deep red lips. Suppose the look looks nothing without the costume or black flowing locks, must I made my best effort!

To do this look it's best to do it near a light so you can see where the light and shadows are on your face. Unfortunately with the dark nights now taking over it will be a lot harder to do it in the evenings (and to get a good photo like above). 

To create a highlight I used a pale powder and for any shading I used a bronzer. I also drew a outline for wherever I found a shade to be (I also discovered how hard it is to draw a straight line on your face). To draw the outlines I used +Maybelline UK  Lasting Drama gel eye liner with my +MAC Cosmetics  209 eye liner brush, this brush is so dainty and perfect for smooth lines.

I also used the eye liner to create fake eyelashes, I didn't use actual fake eye lashes as I wanted the 2D effect. 

If you wanted to go for more of a pop art look, you would do the same as above but use a white eye liner/eye shadow to create white dots all over. But just small dots not to over do it. 

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I have!
